Not so fast John Mayer fans. As previously reported here at SeatGeek, Mayer was scheduled to hit the road extensively this Spring with a series of new tour dates in support of his new album "Born and Raised" - his first headlining tour in two years.
However, after the return of the granuloma in his throat that sidelined him earlier in the year, Mayer has decided to cancel all of his tour dates in March, April and May. An unfortunate turn of events for Mayer foremost, his fans and the music scene. We wish him well as he looks toward recovery.
In a statement released on his website, Mayer said, "Nothing feels worse than having to break the stage down before the performance, and I mean nothing. I love this band you were going to hear, I love the guys and girls I work with, and the only thing that stops me from devolving into a puddle of tears is knowing that it’s a long life, and the greatest gift in the world is being able to create music no matter what the circumstances."
For those who have purchased tickets, Mayer's camp has stated to contact their point of purchase for return details.
Mayer's new album will be released as originally planned on May 22. You can check out the first single "Shadow Days" on iTunes or on one of your local radio stations.
